Virtual Private Cloud

ITIQ Virtual Private Cloud lets you provision a logically isolated section of the ITIQ Web Services Cloud where you can launch ITIQ resources in a virtual network that you define. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways.

You can easily customize the network configuration for your ITIQ Virtual Private Cloud. For example, you can create a public-facing subnet for your webservers that has access to the Internet, and place your backend systems such as databases or application servers in a private-facing subnet with no Internet access. You can leverage multiple layers of security, including security groups and network access control lists, to help control access to ITIQ instances in each subnet.

Additionally, you can create a Hardware Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection between your corporate datacenter and your VPC and leverage the ITIQ cloud as an extension of your corporate datacenter.

Direct Connections

ITIQ makes it easy to establish a dedicated network connection from your premises to ITIQ. Using ITIQ, you can establish private connectivity between ITIQ and your datacenter, office, or colocation environment, which in many cases can reduce your network costs, increase bandwidth throughput, and provide a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.

ITIQ lets you establish a dedicated network connection between your network and one of the ITIQ locations. Using industry standard 802.1q VLANs, this dedicated connection can be partitioned into multiple virtual interfaces. This allows you to use the same connection to access public resources such as objects stored in ITIQ using public IP address space, and private resources such as ITIQ instances running within an ITIQ Virtual Private Cloud using private IP space, while maintaining network separation between the public and private environments. Virtual interfaces can be reconfigured at any time to meet your changing needs.

Load Balancing

Elastic Load Balancing automatically distributes incoming application traffic across multiple instances in the cloud. It enables you to achieve greater levels of fault tolerance in your applications, seamlessly providing the required amount of load balancing capacity needed to distribute application traffic.

DNS

We offer a highly available and scalable cloud Domain Name System (DNS) web service. It is designed to give developers and businesses an extremely reliable and cost effective way to route end users to Internet applications by translating names like www.example.com into the numeric IP addresses like 192.0.2.1 that computers use to connect to each other.

It effectively connects user requests to infrastructure running in ITIQ – such as instances, Elastic Load Balancing load balancers, or buckets – and can also be used to route users to infrastructure outside of ITIQ. You can use ITIQ to configure DNS health checks to route traffic to healthy endpoints or to independently monitor the health of your application and its endpoints. ITIQ Traffic Flow makes it easy for you to manage traffic globally through a variety of routing types, including Latency Based Routing, Geo DNS, and Weighted Round Robin—all of which can be combined with DNS Failover in order to enable a variety of low-latency, fault-tolerant architectures.

Benefits

Multiple Connectivity Options

A variety of connectivity options exist for your ITIQ Virtual Private Cloud. You can connect your VPC to the Internet, to your datacenter, or other VPC's, based on the ITIQ resources that you want to expose publicly and those that you want to keep private.

  • Connect directly to the Internet (public subnets)– You can launch instances into a publicly accessible subnet where they can send and receive traffic from the Internet.
  • Connect to the Internet using Network Address Translation (private subnets)– Private subnets can be used for instances that you do not want to be directly addressable from the Internet. Instances in a private subnet can access the Internet without exposing their private IP address by routing their traffic through a Network Address Translation (NAT) gateway in a public subnet.
  • Connect securely to your corporate datacenter– All traffic to and from instances in your VPC can be routed to your corporate datacenter over an industry standard, encrypted IPsec hardware VPN connection.
  • Connect privately to other VPCs- Peer VPCs together to share resources across multiple virtual networks owned by your or other ITIQ accounts.
  • Connect to ITIQ without using an internet gateway or NAT, and control what buckets, requests, users, or groups are allowed through a VPC Endpoint.
  • Combine connectivity methods to match the needs of your application– You can connect your VPC to both the Internet and your corporate datacenter and configure ITIQ VPC route tables to direct all traffic to its proper destination.

Secure

ITIQ VPC provides advanced security features such as security groups and network access control lists to enable inbound and outbound filtering at the instance level and subnet level. In addition, you can store data in ITIQ and restrict access so that it’s only accessible from instances in your VPC. Optionally, you can also choose to launch Dedicated Instances which run on hardware dedicated to a single customer for additional isolation.

Simple

You can create a VPC quickly and easily using the ITIQ Management Console. You can select one of the common network setups that best match your needs and press "Start VPC Wizard." Subnets, IP ranges, route tables, and security groups are automatically created for you, so you can concentrate on creating the applications to run in your VPC.

Scalability and Reliability

ITIQ VPC provides all the same benefits as the rest of the ITIQ platform. You can instantly scale your resources up or down, select instances types and sizes that are right for your applications, and pay only for the resources you use - all within ITIQ’s proven infrastructure.
